FireWall-1 FAQ: Extracting Parts of the User Database

Please note: This content was from when I was operating my FireWall-1 FAQ site, which I stopped operating in August 2005. For some reason people still have links to this stuff on the Internet that people are still clicking on.


I am making this information available again AS IS. Given how old this information is, it is likely wildly inaccurate. I have no plans to update this information.


If you're still running versions of Check Point VPN-1/FireWall-1 where this information is still relevant to you, do yourself a favor and upgrade to a more recent release. If you happen to be running a current release and the information is useful, it's by happenstance :)


There is a parameter for fw dbexport you can use for this:

fw dbexport -a {atributes}

where attributes is a list of the user attributes you want to export. For example, to export the username, groups, and comments to the file output.txt, you would enter the following command:

fw dbexport -a {name; groups; comments} -o output.txt
